Hobbies & Free Time Pronoun Riddles
Practice pronouns and talk about hobbies and free time with this poster!
How to use this activity?
There are 4 types of cards on this poster:
- The green ones are the easiest riddles. Students replace the underlined pronoun with an appropriate response – 1 point per logical response. (For example, card 1: You need it to play tennis -> You need a ball to play tennis!)
- The purple cards are harder because they generally use phrasal verbs and more difficult vocabulary. Students replace the underlined pronoun with an appropriate response – 2 points per logical response. (For example, card 2: Finally, I figured it out -> Finally, I figured out how to solve this problem!)
- The blue cards have students make their own riddles. Give them a time limit to create a riddle and to type them into the chat. Have students auto police and award 3 points to each student who creates a valid riddle. (For example, card 6: writing-> You can’t do it if you don’t own a pen or a keyboard!)
- The red cards are the hardest. Students must unscramble the sentence correctly and then give a logical solution for the riddle within a time limit – 4 points if they can correctly unscramble and give an appropriate example. (For example, card 5: You can’t do that here because it is not safe.)
Start by choosing a card for your group. Give students a time limit to complete the task (30-90 seconds). For every correct response, they earn points according to the value of the card. Play until all the cards have been used up. The student with the most points at the end wins.
